Is There Still a Stigma Around Plastic Surgery?

The stigma around plastic surgery is quickly disappearing, and perhaps it is easy to understand why.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 15.9 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2015, an increase of 2 percent year over year. Meanwhile, ASPS reports, the number of plastic surgery procedures rose 115 percent between 2000 and 2015 and may continue to increase in the foreseeable future.

Ultimately, there are many reasons why plastic surgery is becoming commonplace across the United States, including:


  1. Plastic surgery offers a wide range of benefits.

Plastic surgery has been shown to deliver a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Improved appearance: Plastic surgery enables an individual to rejuvenate the appearance of the cheeks, eyes, nose and other physical features.
  • Correction of physical issues: Rhinoplasty and other plastic surgeries often allow individuals to correct physical issues, such as breathing issues.
  • Increased self-confidence: With an enhanced physical appearance, an individual can enjoy increased self-confidence that may lead to unparalleled professional and personal growth.

The benefits of plastic surgery usually extend beyond an individual’s appearance. As such, more people are choosing plastic surgery than ever before.
